Parks Week is coming to Wellington
February 21, 2022

Parks Week 5 - 13 March 2022

It's time to dust off the kids' costumes, as everyone's favourites and Gippsland's own Emma Wiggle and Elsa from Frozen will be making special appearances at local parks during Parks Week 2022!

Parks Week runs from 5 to 13 March with a jam-packed calendar of free or affordable events for the whole family.

Our youngest community members are guaranteed a great time during Parks Week at one of our Day Out events, with activities including a jumping castle, face painting, balloon twisting and a petting zoo.

Baby's Day Out will take over Sale Botanic Gardens on Tuesday 8 March for children aged 0-4, and their parents and carers. This year's theme is 'Frozen' - Gippsland's own Elsa will make a special appearance and kids are encouraged to dress as their favourite character!

Wednesday 9 March is Kids Day Out at Yarram Memorial Park. This event is a free, family fun day for children aged 0-6 years, as well as their parents and carers. Gippsland's own Emma Wiggle will make a special appearance and children are encouraged to dress as their favourite character from The Wiggles.

Parks Week isn't just for the kids, our parks and gardens teams have worked with our community to put together a fun calendar of events right across Wellington. From forest therapy to community markets, skateboarding sessions to tree planting and culminating in the Sale Music Festival on 13 March, these free activities are a great way to appreciate and spend time in our parks.
